Tina Turner - Love Thing Videoclip

Love Thing was the third single of Tina Turner’s 1991 compilation album Simply The Best.

Inside this post, why we think Love Thing is… pretty much everything.

Since this blog is called Tina Turner Blog well maybe we have to talk to you a bit about Tina Turner’s new release.That’s right, a new release!  Well according to Parlophone…  Because of course, there’s nothing new about this new “Love Song” compilation, even not the cover.  No new songs or previously unreleased tracks, just classics put together to sell a couple of cd’s on Valentine’s Day. And don’t expect 74-year old Turner to make any promotional appearances in support of the album, as she is “happily retired” from the music business according to her spokesperson.

So, until something more relevant comes from Mr Roger Davies & Parlophone, we thought we might refresh their memories with 6 reasons (there’s probably a thousand more) why Tina should be celebrated in 2014. Continue reading 6 reasons to celebrate Tina Turner in 2014

Starting with an interview from 1985’s Private Dancer Tour, then a live performance from Break Every Rule Tour and finally a video of Simply The Best as the opening number of the Foreign Affair Tour!

A new album – a new style

21 years ago today, Tina released her first ‘solo’ greatest hits album: Simply The Best. The album includes many of Tina’s biggest hits, including three new songs: Love Thing, Way Of The World and I Want You Near Me. It was Tina’s first sign of activity after her 1990 Foreign Affair tour, at that time billed as her ‘farewell’ tour. History learns that, luckily, two more farewell tours would follow. But maybe the biggest surprise of this 1991 comeback was Tina’s new hair style. Gone were the huge lion manes – the new look was short and classy. With this album, Tina proved to be ready for the 90’s! Continue reading for the press release that went out for the album. Thanks to Lars and Alan for the scans!
